Ramba Before Coffee

A quick live update to let everyone know we are getting back on the road again. At this point we are hoping for a mid afternoon arrival, but we will know more as the day goes on.

Ramba continues to do well. She is now drinking very well and has some more fresh grass (her favorite) and seems tired but still bright. As you can see, everyone is tired, especially before coffee.

We will try to check back in later if internet allows, we will most likely do a test from the barn to make sure internet is stable enough today for live feed from the sanctuary, and then our sweet grandma will be home.

Thank you to everyone who came together to make her trip to sanctuary possible, it has been a long road, but together, somehow, we made it happen.

    Ok now I am already a sobbing mess as Scott speaks of beloved Pelusa. The loss of Pelusa is still such a fresh wound and then to lose Guida… it makes this journey for Ramba especially poignant. Kat, Scott, Suz…. bless you for all you did for Pelusa. Time ran out. She now runs free with the herd in heaven. The logistics to make this trek possible for Ramba must be so complex and intricate, I cannot image how exhausting and nerve-wrecking it must be for you. AND STILL you are the most generous caring people. I love you and all you do so much. Love the posts and videos. No tiny tidbit is too small! So preparing for the next emotional wringer with the anticipation of our tired grandma (I can relate being a retired grandma too) reaching sanctuary. Cannot wait to see what Maia and Rana think of the lastest arrival. Thank you seems feeble compared to the gratitude I feel.

    It wont be long now. I wonder what she will think her first at Sanctuary. Will you keep her near the barn or let her roam?
